The episode, which airs at 9 PM ET, casts the Tony and Emmy-winning actress as the upscale mother of two sons, one a Wall Street broker, the other a convicted murderer sentenced to death row.
“I’m thrilled to be doing this guest appearance on ‘The Good Wife,’” Uggams said in a statement. “Not only is it a great role, but it’s on one of my favorite television shows. My character’s storyline is very dramatic. The son who’s in prison can help solve a murder, so there is a chance that he’ll get a stay of execution. The law firm of Lockhart Gardner, where ‘the good wife’ works, becomes involved in that process.”
"The Good Wife" stars Emmy Award winner Julianna Margulies, Emmy nominee Josh Charles, Tony and Emmy Award winner Christine Baranski, Emmy Award winner Archi Panjabi, Emmy nominee and Olivier Award winner Alan Cumming and Matt Czuchry. Golden Globe nominee Chris Noth is also featured.
